Today we’re channeling the good intentions of nagging moms across the nation as we countdown the best winter jackets! As the temps plummet it’s important to dress appropriately for the weather. However, not one jacket fits all. Take into consideration how cold is cold for your winter; what you will be wearing underneath, and how long you will be wearing your jacket. The last thing you want to happen is for you to melt like frosty the snowman under layers of thermal padding on a brief train ride. When in doubt, always wear layers so you can peel one back as needed. It’s better to be too warm than too cold, don’t you think?
